It was a wonderful night to party with purpose! On Thursday, May 23rd, our community of friends and supporters joined VNA Care’s nurses and clinicians for a magical evening to celebrate our 11th annual benefit.

Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful sponsors and partners, we raised nearly $50,000 to support compassionate care for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families and community nursing provided by VNA Care in Needham and surrounding towns.

The enchanting evening was filled with elegance, delicious food and spectacular entertainment from Shalyah Fearing who starred on The Voice. The celebration included a truly touching tribute to VNA Care’s hospice care and our Fund the Need program, led by co-chairs Louise Condon and Ellison Patten, which inspired so many to give of themselves and make a difference.
